Turkmen Style Rugs
Turkmen rugs are handmade floor covering textiles that were originally produced by the Turkmen tribes, the main ethnic group in Turkmenistan that is also found in large numbers in Afghanistan and Iran. Later, they were brought into Turkey and Persia over the years by immigrants who sold their handcrafted products in the Turkish and Persian markets. Today, Turkoman or Turkmen rugs are woven by nomadic weavers in Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, and Afghanistan (from Kunduz in the east to Maimanah in the west).
Most Turkmen weavers belong to a tribe called the Ersarim. This tribe is made up of different clans, each with its own characteristic motifs that could be found in the rugs they made. The Tekke gul, a small gul pattern, and the elephant’s foot, a larger octagonal gul, are two of the most widely used motifs.
You can also find a wide range of Turkmen style rugs that are made exclusively for export in Pakistan.
With their distinctive dark reds, blues, and blacks, with ivory gul motifs blended in, these rugs are a great choice for homeowners who want to make a statement in their home design. They are made using soft but hard-wearing wool and feature a thin pile. The tribal nature of these rugs means that they are usually small to mid-sized and you will be hard-pressed to find a very large authentic Turkmen style rug.

This is because the weavers belong to different tribes and clans use their own variation of the gul motif.
